Happy Tuesday, Gamecocks fans.
South Carolina’s coaches were out and about making important stops along the recruiting trail, and they received some good news along the way.
Here are four things to know:
- South Carolina drew a commitment from in-state linebacker T.J. Brunson. The three-star prospect from Columbia, S.C. de-committed from Louisville in December after receiving an in-home visit from Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp. Brunson officially visited South Carolina this past weekend.
- South Carolina coaches Will Muschamp, Travaris Robinson and Lance Thompson made an in-home visit with the nation’s No. 3 cornerback, Kristian Fulton, who said the trip “went great.”
- Hoops coach Frank Martin discussed trying to slow down Ole Miss guard Stefan Moody: “Everyone’s tried and it’s still 25 points every single night.” Moody is averaging 25.6 points in five conference games, and South Carolina will try to slow him down when the two teams meet on Tuesday night.
- Four-star New Orleans defensive tackle Stephon Taylor received an in-home visit from Muschamp. Taylor is expected to officially visit South Carolina on Jan. 29.
